An engrossing suspense film with Mickey Rooney, Peter Lorre, and Jeanne Cagney. Needing money for a date, Rooney borrows $20 from the cash register, starting a chain of events that includes car theft, burglary, and possibly murder. (Yes, that is Jack Elam in the bar scene.) Read more at the IMDB . (The video is interlaced in both the MPEG2 file and the Cinepack. If viewing with VLC, deinterlace with menu-path Video/Deinterlace/Blend.) This is a better copy than the previous versions that were...

German director Fritz Lang is best known for the highly influential films from relatively early in his career, especially Metropolis (1927) and M (1931). But he also had a brief Hollywood heyday during the mid 1940s, when he made some of his best films. Scarlet Street has been claimed by film noir. This attribution is understandable. The lighting is dark, with heavy use of shadows. The characters are all shady as well. Kitty is certainly a femme fatale, although hints are dropped that she is an...

This film is in the public domain. The copyright notice in the opening credits refers to a musical background track which has been removed. This is the original, unedited, full-length version which predates "Metropolis" by three years. FROM IMDB: This is called the first Soviet science fiction film because of its "futuristic" sets on Mars, although most of it takes place in Moscow. The movie is set at the beginning of the NEP (New Economic Policy) in December, 1921. A...

Life in an itinerant theatrical troupe. A well-acted and well-produced pre-code drama which touches on infidelity and illegitimacy (by '30s standards). The final scenes might be considered an unintentional prediction of the 1944 Hartford circus tragedy. Directed by Victor Schertzinger. Released in 1933. a.k.a. "The Constant Woman". complete print.

Life in and around a British bomber base from 1940 to early 1943. Excellent cast. Solid direction. Good production. This isn't a traditional war actioner. Rather it's a drama with romantic elements of how lives are impacted by war. Although highly regarded now, it flopped at its US opening, possibly because audiences were expecting a British actioner like "One of Our Aircraft is Missing" or "We Dive at Dawn." Directed by Anthony Asquith. Released in 1945. a.k.a. "Johnny...
